Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook

Reinstalled windows on Dell laptop, can't get to internet

It think it's missing the driver to be able to get to the internet connection (won't connect directly through ethernet cable or wirelessly). I can't get the drivers because i can't get on net. Dell gave me the link for drivers, but i tried to download with my daughter's computer (not a Dell) and save to a usb drive so i could try to get it to the other computer. It isn't on the Usb and now i'm worried I've added confusing drivers her laptop and still can't get my laptop connected.

You were on the right track.

Take the files you downloaded from the other computer and place them onto the thumb drive.

Take them to the other computer.

Copy the files to the desktop.

Most Dell Drivers are .exe packages so just double-click each one and follow the prompts.

If you get stuck or have questions just add another comment and I'll respond.

Best of luck!

You will need to make sure the drivers are reinstalled back into the system. Below is a link to download the drivers as well as the driver reinstall order. I am also including a link to provide instructions for setting up your network and wireless internet.

Cannot access internet


If i understand the issue correctly. You reinstalled the windows on your computer and the system is not connecting to the network . Most likely reason is you need to reinstall the network driver for the internet .

No connection to the internet


if you have anti-virus/firewall, check the firewall if it is allowing your network to communicate with your laptop.

if you don't have firewall, check if you have IP address.

if you don't have an IP address, check if the driver of your network card was installed properly.

Let me know if you are not familiar how to check as mentioned above.

Device manager and network adapter missing


you need to reinstall the drivers for your network, such as the ethernet and the wireless drivers. try to check if you still have the dell resource cd drivers disc. you need to insert that disc and check for the network drivers install them one at a time. if you no longer have the drivers disc then you can download it from a diff computer that has an internet connection. this is the website http://support.dell.com

click on the drivers and download and click on the green icon to enter the service tag. after that it will display all the drivers. you can download just the network first and save it to a storage device. then install that to your computer and download the rest of the drivers after you connected to the internet.

Can't connect to internet after reinstalling window-inspiron 8600


Use a computer that is connected to the Internet, then download and copy the drivers on to a CD or USB menory stick and install them on your computer.

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop. This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model laptop are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

Can't connect to internet through wireless


Go to a working computer (beg borrow or steal) and download the drivers for your model laptop from the DELL WEB site (suggest you insert your Service Tag to get the correct drivers for your model laptop), copy it to a CD or USB memory stick and then install them on your computer.
Don't forget to activate your XP license and also install SP3 (Service Pack 3 it's approx. 350Mb in size).
